The European Union Center, along with the Department of Recreation, Sport and Tourism, and Global Education & Training, would like to invite you to study this summer at the world-famous University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


Here is an outstanding opportunity for you to study at our campus for two weeks, experience the teaching methods of U.S. higher education faculty, and complete two courses in Sport Management. Each course includes 16 hours of instruction, delivered in two-hour morning and afternoon class segments. The instructors will encourage and lead students through discussions of complex sport management and development issues in the United States and Europe.


Supervised Group Travel: Following two weeks of in-class course delivery, students will complete a 5-day group tour with faculty members and engaged in experiential learning. Students will visit key sport and tourist sites, in Chicago and Indianapolis (e.g., major league baseball, basketball, national football league, motorsports, museums, Navy Pier). This tour provides students a unique opportunity to engage with sport, recreation and tourism industry leaders with experience in the United States and Europe in professional and collegiate sports, tourism development, facility management, and public and private recreation.
